Is your business subject to HITECH Act data breach notification requirements? Do you know? If you are or you think you might be, you may want to check out a Web conference the Health Care Compliance Association is offering next month. If these data breach requirements will become your new reality as of Sept. 24, it may be worth the cost.
According to the HCCA Web site, on Sept. 17 at noon Central Time, health care attorney Cynthia Marcotte Stamer, a partner at Curran Tomko Tarski, and Raj Mehta, a partner at Deloitte and Touche, will explain the new requirements and detail who is required to comply as well as how they should go about doing that.
They also will discuss how a company can qualify health information as exempt from data breach requirements as well as what they will face for non-compliance. You can find more information on the HCCA Web site.
